An area with a good day of climbing for the savvy 5.10 leader. This rock has one of the shortest approaches in OZ. Standouts include the thin Welcome To Rondoland (aka Glenda's Crack) (5.10d), Click Your Heels Twice (5.10c), Storm Riders (aka The Answer) (5.9) and the enjoyable Honey (5.9).

Getting There 

From southern parking pullout on Gold Park Road, Munchkinland, which includes No Place Like Dome, is the complex area of dark rock visible from the car. Head west-southwest into the obvious drainage for the area. Boulder hop up and left past the first large face encountered. Most of the routes are located on the norh face, and are not visible on the approach. The routes descend to the south (climbers left).

I don't believe that it was climbed prior to our ascent as this flake would obviously have been touched prior, had the route been climbed. Thus I dispute the "Answer" FA claim. If the "Answer" team can show me photos of that flake there during their asc...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
